Hello all the way from Derby, England! I stumbled across this site whilst looking for advice/support. I am trying to quit mainly for health reasons, I like to push myself hard in the gym but I'm starting to realise I can only push myself so hard as smoking holds me back. I quit about 48 hours ago so it's still fresh and the temptation is killing me! I sat outside a supermarket for 10 minutes on t...
Tomorrow is my quit day AGAIN. I have been doing the Cessate Research program with UNSW and know the Champix works but it did make me feel a little spacey and sometimes feeling sick if not eaten enough as you have to eat with Champix. Anyway, I know I have just have to get committed to my health and I know how much better I feel when I don't smoke and how much my cardio fitness improves.
I am 5...
It's been more than 24 hours since I had my last cigarette. I am so proud of myself. The cravings have been subsided by bottles of water and so far it has worked.
I have just got a prescription for nicotine pads to help me through my quitting days. Glad that I had a strong willpower to quit. The nicotine pads are an additional method to quitting which I am going to use.
Long story short.
I have a prescription starter pack of Champix, but decided a few hours ago I had enough of smoking after I came back from a lousy rainy run. It does help I was also out of cigs.
I've been planning to quit for while, and was able to get a prescription of Champix before I moved internationally from my previous GP.

Hi people. I posted a couple of times earlier on my journey. Ive reached 2 weeks, might not seem like much, it’s huge to me! I gave up when pregnant and just spoke to my son at 21 years and Realised I have smoked all his life. After breastfeeding. 2 weeks in feels doable. I’m sick of thinking about it because I’m over it so look forward to the day when it’s not on my mind at all. My sister visit...
Seeing is believing. Please click on this link to what i might envision the nicotine monster to be and what he is trying to hide. When you see through the nicotine monster you will see truth. Once seen , you cannot unsee. Lets call this the Mindset.

I had been smoking and chewing tobacco since I was 13. I somehow managed to quit them all together 2.5 years back. However, due to few challenges in personal life, I stupidly started chewing tobacco after staying quit for good 2.5 years.
This time, I chew tobacco only (No smoking) for about 3.5 months and now on quit journey since last 5+ weeks. With my first quit, I remember, it ...
